Check out the Chocolate

There's a reason that Bon Bons Chocolatier is overflowing with customers on many weekends and most holidays. The handmade chocolates at Bon Bons are a delight to the eyes and the taste buds. 

In 1979, Bon Bons opened as one of Trahan's Chocolate Shop's East Coast franchise stores. After several years, the store became independent of the franchise and was renamed Bon Bons Chocolatier. Chocolate production was, and still is, done on the premises. 

In 1984, the original owners sold the store (first located at 338 New York Avenue) to Mary Alice Meinersman and her husband. The shop, now at 319 Main Street, is home to a beautiful glass-enclosed kitchen, with a molding and wrapping room, and hand-dipping station, that allows customers to see where and how the chocolate is made.  

For approximately $10.00 you can purchase a small box (about eight or nine candies) and endulge. The coconut and cocoa dusted truffles are delectable, and the chocolate covered nuts are also delicious - HINT. 

During the Easter season, you can also order beautiful chocolate bunnies and chocolate eggs filled with truffles, chocolate covered nuts and other candies. 

When available, the fresh, chocolate dipped fruit (strawberries, orange slices, etc.)  is also delicious. It's a great treat to bring to any party. If you're interested in buying some, contact the store to find out when it will be sold, then get there early - this stuff goes fast!
